p.2 New Steamer - The new steamer building at the ship yard of Alderman Weeks, in this city, is now being corked and receiving the finish to her hull. She will be ready to launch in three or four weeks. Her deck planks are fitted, and the carpenter work of her cabins and upper works, is progressing finely. Capt. Weeks' boat is 230 feet long, about 50 feet beam on deck, over all, and 700 tons measurement. She is pronounced by ship builders the most beautiful model upon the lakes, and is to have a powerful engine, her machinery being contracted for in New York. She will take rank in the first class of Lake Ontario Steamers, and it is believed will be the fastest steamer on the lake. [O. Times]
